The Maple class has embraced children and teachers from around the world. We celebrated Christmas by exploring the themes of commonality and diversity as each child showcased special treasures from their home countries which took us on a virtual journey around the world. I felt it was quite appropriate to express this activity in song. Join with us by singing these words to the tune of the iconic song “The 12 days of Christmas”.
